Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am using fedora core 4 (with last kernel available). As I installed fc4 I configured yum and it worked just fine , however recently it seems to work only whenever he likes to , and every time I write in root mode "yum install ..." it's just a matter of luck if it is going to work. I usually writes this error message:
[root@realcr yum.repos.d]# yum search ardour
